The Fachhochschule Westküste has been an initiative of local entrepreneurs and politicians. It was founded in 1993 and startet in rented rooms. Thus, already in 1997 the first graduates left our university.
In 2000 the university moved to the new buildings east of Heide. In 2008 already 400 beginners started their studies and nowadays more than 1100 are enrolled at the FHW.
Our tasks are diverse and international. The international office is working in the fore- and background in order to help students from the West Coast University of Applied Sciences (FHW), guest students or trainees from abroad to collect international experience. We are listening and trying to help according to our possibilities.Our services include:
The library is the central institution to provide students and staff members with literature and information.
To use the library service you need a library user card which you get at the issue desk. You’ll need to show your ID and student ID.
Please report immediately the loss of your library card. The library will not take any responsibility in case of misuse.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
